The junior suite has its own hot springs and makes it so nice to experience it at any time. Very nice patio leading to the springs. The room is very comfortable--air conditioning, robes and slippers included. There is a trail to walk to experience the reforestation, flowers, and wildlife. Breakfast ok but could improve on the yuca-- Gallo pinto was... More

Beautiful hotel, friendly staff. Wonderful hot springs that you can visit pretty much 24 hours a day. The free breakfast was amazing - and we loved the beautiful bird feeder in the morning where they put out fruit to attract a wide range of birds - so cool! We ate at the restaurant the first night and weren't too impressed... More

I am giving this hotel 3 stars because of our mixed views. The hotel itself is gourgeous. We had a room with a hot tub and the grounds and pools were well maintained. Those are the positive. The negatives were that the food was very bland and over priced, in my opinion. I want to be clear that this is... More

Me and my fiancée stayed at Volcano Lodge and Springs from Feb 1st - Feb 6th and honestly loved it. Usually I read the reviews on Tripadvisor and laugh at some of the feedback and ridiculous comments people make about resorts and staff, so I will make it a point to give you realistic and honest advice on this hotel....

We booked our trip last minute during high season so felt lucky to get a room with a private thermal bath. We weren't sure how that was going to be setup, but we were pleasantly surprised that the "hot spring" was indeed private to our room and quite nice to relax in after long days of hiking and exploring in...

Our stay here was nothing short of amazing. The costa rican people are great and the staff of this hotel was fabulous! Everyone was fun, helpful and inviting. I've never been to a country nor a hotel that was as welcoming. The rooms were great, food was great, people were great, and the activities were great. If you can't tell... More

Our stay was amazing! Check in took 2 minutes, in which we had a nice cold coctail waiting for us, the kind bellman took us to our room and showed us around and explained how to operate anything that needed explaining. Breakfast was nice, included warm dishes, fruit, bread, and a stand where you can choose what to put in... More

We had a great stay at this hotel. It was located near the activities we had planned around Arenal. Our room was comfortable, and service was excellent. We loved the restaurant staff. They were our best Spanish tutors on the trip :-) We would definitely stay there again.

I just have good memories when I think about Volcano Lodge: everyone was friendly and helpful, the room was clean and the mattress comfortable, the garden amazing (I took tons of pictures! ), the restaurant was good (complimentary breakfast ) and the menu representative of Costa Rica cuisine. After a long day of adventures, it was heaven to relax in... More
